Welcome

Yoga practitioner John Stirk has been teaching Yoga and body-mind movement for over 40 years. His work aims to deepen, open and broaden the Yoga experience by inviting students to sink beneath existing knowledge and practical application and draw out for themselves their deeper practitioner.

John’s interest in the impediments to understanding, compassion and freedom from the self, informs his posture based work which attends to the physical while simultaneously questioning the nature of conditioning, habit and fear in their various guises.

Participants are invited to open up ways of being that include clarity, relaxed sensitivity, and a deep, flowing awareness of how they are on all levels.

He runs classes, workshops and residentials for yoga students and teachers throughout the UK and internationally.

John is a truly gifted guide. He carefully balances; challenging with enormous and genuine encouragement; seriousness and utter commitment with humour; humility with visionary leadership. He shares his expansive and ever increasing knowledge and lives the transformation he speaks – showing us how we can transform ourselves through working deeply and holistically with our minds and bodies in positive and lasting ways. At the core of his work is love and generosity. I can’t recommend working with John highly enough and feel privileged to have attended his course (and days and retreats).

Nadine Edwards

In “What lies beneath” course John guided us with extraordinary knowledge, remarkable sensitivity and care to (self) discover where movement comes from and where it leads to, and to experience the incredible possibilities this discovery can bring to our body, emotions and spirit.  This is yoga at its very fundamental basis.
